Cycling the Alps to Ocean ride, we stayed overnight at Tokarahi Homestead. What a treat. The home is beautiful, hospitality outstanding and the food was wonderful. Couldn't have asked for more - would highly recommend staying here.

After a long hard days bike ride, our group of 12 were warmly greeted by Heather with freshly made scones, jam and hot coffee - what more could we ask for! The accommodation was amazing and we were all very impressed with our own little huts that were clean and well presented. After a delicious home cooked evening meal and... More

4 of us were hoping to stay in Tokarahi (North Otago with beautiful rolling hills/ limestone cliffs/ near to the biking track and well established farming community). We saw the glamping cabins advertised and thought that sounded like us. These were, however, not yet available due to building holdups. We were, instead offered the Homestead and spent a very comfortable... More

The moment we arrived we know we'd come to the right place. As both Brent and I love antiques and old homesteads we both felt in heaven. Tokarahi homestead is a lovingly restored late Victorian house made from local stone full of beautiful furniture of the same era. As we pulled up in the car park Heather opened the huge... More

We were on our way from Oamaru to Mt. Cook and looking for a stop along the way. As we got further into the countryside, we began to doubt our selection which we had made from the States. Are we pleased we carried on! What a pleasant stay. Heather's hospitality was gracious and sincere. We read our books on the... More

I was on a High Country 4WD trip with five friends from the Waikato recently and can honestly say that all of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tokarahi Homestead, it being one of the highlights of our trip. Everything about the experience of staying at Tokarahi Homestead was superb. Heather made us all feel welcome with an immaculately presented... More

We drove to Tokarahi Homestead from Dunedin, and the drive in itself was great! great countryside, good views, interesting roads! (Frank had given us good directions and we had a map) We were heading to Lake Tekapo the next day. Frank and Heather were very welcoming and made us feel instantly at home. Our room was stunning, with ceilings as... More
